Leaves by Hundreds came
"October gave a party;
The leaves by hundreds came -
The Chestnuts, Oaks, and Maples,
And leaves of every name.
The Sunshine spread a carpet,
And everything was grand,
Miss Weather led the dancing,
Professor Wind the band."
...? Seems like just last week… My, how time flies when you are having fun!
From “October’s Party” by George Cooper
Great way to use all the autumn leaves you collect on walks during the season. Slowly build up the leaf rosette and let the leaves dry before adding a few more.
My article and Japanese paper flower armature design featured in the March issue of The Academy Leader- Academy of Floral Design, published by the The Floral Art Society of New...
This was the third design I did in my "All things Autumn (by which I mean all things chocolate)" floral art demonstration
Skewer Dracaena leaves into a roll that supports a tiny water source for the Oncidium orchids
For a softer autumn leaf pod turn the leaves so that the bright side faces in when making the pod.
My Halloween design... with some scary stuff hidden if you can read between the leaves!
An early Spring design with a twist on using an old favourite: composite flowers.
This orchid developed at the very end of a long stem... right as the rest of the flowers started to die back so I made a special armature to display the cut stem.
